Meetings are places for dialogue between citizens where everyone speaks freely while respecting the rules of mutual listening. They should allow to build a common reflection on the issues and challenges facing the Mediterranean area and define the axes of reflection and action for the future but also deepen the theoretical concepts and themes. They must also allow to enhance the dynamics of the ACM.
